‘Five a day’ could damage children’s teeth


Health-conscious parents will be disappointed to learn that encouraging their children to drink fruit juice and smoothies every day could be doing more harm than good, according to the Royal College of Surgeons. Half of five-year-olds in the UK showed signs of enamel erosion during a recent study, because the acid in fruit juice attacks the porous shell of the teeth as it releases sugars.

Kathy Harley, Dean of the dental faculty at the College has suggested that schools should provide an alternative to juice during the lunch hour, such as water or milk. She also said that it would be a good idea to limit the intake of smoothies and juice drinks to once a week, as a weekend treat perhaps. The NHS doesn’t go that far, but dentists are in agreement that the amount children drink on a daily basis has to be monitored carefully, otherwise their teeth could become severely eroded, and they advise parents to offer fruit juice during mealtimes, as this is thought to do less damage to the enamel.

Damien Walmsley of the British Dental Association spoke to the Daily Mail, saying that juice drinks should be kept to meal times, ‘That [may] go against the [recommendation of] five portions of fruit and vegetables a day,’ he says, ‘but it is not a good idea snacking on it because of the continual drip, drip, on to the tooth.’

New ‘gas drill’ could replace traditional methods


The drill is probably the most feared of all the dental tools, and with good reason, the vibrations are not only mind-numbing, they are also capable of causing considerable discomfort as they jolt the nerve endings in the teeth. Well now the millions of dental-phobic people all over the world have one less thing to worry about; a new ‘gas-firing’ drill has been developed as a pain free alternative, it can also make the process faster and more hard-wearing for the future.

Researchers at the University of Missouri are taking credit for the revolutionary idea, and they are confident that their new product will allow more patients to undergo filling treatment with a less painful outcome. Tooth decay is the most common dental problem in the world, and cavities currently have to be treated by drilling away the decayed area and then replacing it with fillings made of amalgam or composite bonding material. The ‘non-thermal argon plasma brush’ will remove the uncomfortable drilling stage; it works by firing out tiny electrically charged particles that are powerful enough to cut through the enamel, killing bacteria as they go – which means it is also a more sanitary process.

Head of prosthodontics at King’s College London Dental Institute spoke to the Daily Mail earlier today, saying that ‘in principle, it sounds like a good idea. If this mixture of gas and liquid can be shown to remove enamel, it would be a big step forward for dentistry.’

Kylie’s face sparks rumours of cosmetic enhancement


Her petite figure and flawless complexion may be the envy of women all over the globe, but recent photos of Kylie Minogue suggest she’s not as pleased with her appearance as most 43-year-old’s would be. The aussi singer is known for her age-defying looks and doesn’t seem to have changed drastically since she burst onto the pop scene in the eighties.

Kylie was seen attending a charity concert at the Royal Opera House in London last week; her face appeared unusually smooth under the glare of the flashbulbs. A report in the Daily Mail stated that rumours of Kylie using Botox were old news, she even admitted to cosmetic enhancement last year, but she has been adamant ever since that she hasn’t touched the stuff – do her frozen features tell a different story?

In a 2010 interview, the former neighbours star said she was finished with facial fillers, ‘I’ve been honest about the fact that I did use Botox.’ She said, adding; ‘I have lines. You can see the lines on my face.’ Kylie praised the use of a new face cream, maintaining that her smooth complexion was the result of good skin care and quality moisturizing products.

Her latest photographs won’t go much way to quashing the rumours, but she vented her annoyance a few days later, tweeting ‘So, I have been filmed out in public the last three nights and suddenly it is ‘reported’ I cannot move my face?’

Ruby Wax ‘has Botox injections once a year’


Ruby Wax 'has Botox injections once a year'Individuals contemplating having Botox to remove the early signs of ageing could be interested in recent comments about the substance made by Ruby Wax.

In a recent interview with the Daily Mail, the 58-year-old comedienne stated that she has the anti-wrinkle injections once a year because her career depends on the appearance of her face.

While listing her favourite things, the mother-of-three claimed undergoing the non-invasive surgery once a year was enough for her as it ensures she was still able to show her expressions.

As part of the interview, Wax also revealed that she would be happy to spend her life in her pyjamas as she is a fan of dressing for comfort, and declared that Dawn French is one of her favourite people.

Speaking highly of her fellow funny woman, she stated that the pair are in tune with each other’s emotions and are able to read certain situations in a particular manner.

Children’s dentistry: Parents should clean baby’s gums


Children's dentistry: Parents should clean baby's gums Parents looking to book a children's dentistry appointment should start cleaning their offspring's gums before the emergence of teeth.

Potentially harmful bacteria found in the mouths of infants could lead to decay prior to the growth of milk teeth, which is why an effective routine is vital from an early age.

This view is echoed by the Daily Mail, which recently reported a study conducted by the University of Illinois that discovered oral health issues could develop in babies.

Leading the research, Professor Kelly Swanson revealed that scientists had found that a "window of infectivity" occurred at a much younger age than originally thought.

"Like many other diseases, dental cavities are a result of many bacteria in a community, not just one pathogen," he added.

The British Dental Health Foundation advises parents to introduce their child to the sights and sounds of a surgery from an early age to remove any worries they may have.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800701016-ADNFCR

Good oral health ‘could reduce risk of Alzheimer’s’


Good oral health 'could reduce risk of Alzheimer's'Health-conscious individuals who attend regular check-ups with an emergency dentist could be limiting their risk of dementia, a study has suggested.

According to the Daily Mail, maintaining a high standard of overall health is vital for staving off the symptoms of Alzheimer's in later life.

The connection was established after Canadian researchers carried out a series of experiments to assess the effects a range of illnesses had on older people.

Scientists revealed that the likelihood of dementia increased 3.2 per cent for every complaint, including poor oral hygiene, which affected them.

"It's very important to try and maintain fitness and health at whatever standard you are able," explained Dr Marie Jackson.

Alzheimer's Association states that age, family history and genetics are the most important factors when considering the likelihood of the illness.

The organisation urges older people to ensure they live an overall healthy lifestyle in a bid to keep their brain and body in a good condition.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800622409-ADNFCR

Debbie Harry ‘has had Botox’


Debbie Harry 'has had Botox'Image-conscious women looking to improve their appearance with anti-wrinkle injections could be interested to hear that Debbie Harry has had Botox.

According to the Daily Mail, the Blondie singer is a big fan of cosmetic procedures and believes stars such as Joan Rivers and Cher have the right idea when it comes to looking good at a more advanced age.

"I don't think any of us want to get older,’ she remarked, "but there are all these things out there that if you want to, you should take advantage of." ".

The 66-year-old went on to predict that she would undergo more cosmetic treatment in the future in a bid to maintain her youthful complexion.

Well-known for her innovative style and red lips, Harry is rumoured to have received a facelift, eyelift and a series of fillers to ensure a young appearance.

Her hugely popular band emerged back on to the music scene in 1999 with hit single Maria, which was their first release since War Child in 1982. ADNFCR-2621-ID-800609953-ADNFCR

Has Simon Cowell had too much Botox?


Has Simon Cowell had too much Botox?The lighting team on Britain's Got Talent reportedly had to act quickly on Monday (May 30th) to combat signs of Simon Cowell's Botox use.

A source told the Daily Mail that the talent show judge and media mogul visibly showed symptoms associated with excessive treatment.

Cowell's eye was wilting a little and a small bruise above his cheekbone could be seen by the live audience, with producers rushing to alter the lighting during the first advertising break.

"Simon has overdone things a little with the Botox and it soon showed up on camera – especially as we film in high definition, which is particularly unforgiving," the anonymous source explained to the publication.

It came to light at the live semi-final of the talent contest created by Cowell, who recently hit the news after firing pop star Cheryl Cole from The X-Factor.

She and Cowell both left the British version of the show to take the format to the US, but the arrangement did not go as planned.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800564259-ADNFCR

Wife demands Botox injections ‘to look like Katie Price’


Wife demands Botox injections 'to look like Katie Price'A British woman spends thousands of pounds of her husband's money on Botox and other cosmetic treatments so she can look like Katie Price.

Lisa Hind from Runcorn in Cheshire has spent an estimated £15,000 in the past four years on the anti-wrinkle injections as well as lip fillers, false nails and hair extensions.

According to the Daily Mail, the 25-year-old, who has met former glamour model Price nine times, told husband Steve she would marry him on the condition he funded her habit.

The aspiring model also revealed she has been on a sun bed every day for the past nine years and does not care about the associated cancer risk.

She said: "I always take my make up off before bed so I've had lipliner, eyeliner and my eyebrows tattooed on in case I get rushed to hospital in the middle of the night."

TV personality Price received Botox injections in front of the cameras for her reality series Katie and Peter: The Next Chapter in 2008.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800561856-ADNFCR

Could Botox act as an instant boob job?


Could Botox act as an instant boob job?Women who feel self conscious about the appearance of their breasts may be interested to hear that Botox treatment could provide a solution.

Unveiled by a Thai dermatologist at the World Conference of Cosmetic and Anti-ageing Medicine in Monte Carlo, the procedure offers instant results with no recovery time, the Daily Mail reports.

Now available to patients in the UK, the injection is said to tone and lift the skin on the breasts – making them appear firmer and younger.

The treatment may be more appealing to some women than surgical procedures, which can require long periods of recovery time.

Anti-ageing specialist Dr Cecilia Tregear from London's Wimpole Skin Care Centre said: "It shapes the breasts, giving them volume and ironing out wrinkles caused by sun damage on the decolletage."

Botox treatment has emerged as a useful tool used by specialists for a number of cosmetic and medical problems.

UK practitioners have recently been awarded a licence to administer the injection to people suffering from chronic migraines.ADNFCR-2621-ID-800559548-ADNFCR
